Kindergarten: Kentucky law requires youths between 6 and 18 years old to attend school, and the birthday cutoff to enroll in kindergarten is age 5 on or before Aug. 1.
Preschool: Families may apply for preschool if their child turns 4 on or before Aug. 1 and is income-eligible. Please visit our preschool webpage in late April for instructions. (Three- and 4-year-olds who have a special need may apply year-round.)
For 2023-24: The initial kindergarten registration window is Feb. 6-17 for children joining FCPS this fall.
Please follow these steps to sign up any K-12 student who is new to Fayette County Public Schools:
